Live the Shimmering Dream in Lee Led, Surat Thani

This is Lee Led, a small community in the heart of Surat Thani, though the good things it offers are anything but small. That’s because the place is well known as the Amazon of Thailand due to its richest mangrove forests.

The people of Lee Led are like villager-sages. Besides excelling at reading the earth and sky much more accurately than weather forecasts, each is adept at utilizing every part of a tree.

One of the best things about Lee Led is the millions of fireflies that live in this region. As twilight approaches, you can expect to see shimmering lights glowing from the fireflies.  It’s like living in a dream.
